Regardless of whether or not Merrick Garland and the Department of Justice prosecute Trump on criminal charges, the January 6th Committee hearings are providing evidence and valuable ammunition for those who are suing Trump in civil court. Incidentally, Attorney General Garland said he and DOJ prosecutors are watching every minute of the hearings.

The hearings are also likely to impact the Fulton County, Georgia case against Trump for interference in the 2020 election. There is also the possibility of wire fraud case against Trump for raising money under false pretenses.

(WaPo)A federal judge on Friday sweepingly rejected former president Donald Trump’s claim of “absolute immunity” from lawsuits accusing him of inciting the violent Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot, finding that there was evidence to plausibly suggest that he engaged in a conspiracy with organized groups to intimidate Congress into overturning the results of the 2020 election.

Lawsuits filed by members of Congress include one by Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) and nine other lawmakers; one from Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), a former prosecutor and Trump impeachment manager; and another from Capitol Police officers James Blassingame and Sidney Hemby.

Other lawsuits:
Wisconsin Voters File Suit Against Alleged Fraudulent Electors
The Wisconsin voters allege that the defendants orchestrated and executed a plan to pose as lawfully elected Wisconsin presidential electors to send fraudulent certificates in favor of Donald Trump to Congress.

D.C. District Court Judge Rules Trump Jan. 6 Civil Case Will Move Forward, Dismisses Cases For Some Allies
The ruling determined that Trump could be held liable for his conduct in office.

    At least someone is. Baha!

    Old news. And, TDS driven. In fact, the one thing the Jan 6th gang has failed to do is connect Trump to the riot...so far, at least.

    But, still, from your keystrokes to God's ears. I think these hearings are silly and fruitless and a waste of time.

    But, if the Committee can further imperil Trump in some way, and if Trump doesn't win the 024 GOP nomination...

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaa

    Can you say GOP supermajority in the Senate? See, I knew you could.

    HtS,
    You have at least one thing in common with Donald Trump: willful ignorance. So you don't think that the January 6th committee has been able to connect Donald Trump to the riot?

    Sedition
    language or behavior that is intended to persuade other people to oppose their government.

    The committee is also making a case that Donald Trump was bilking his supporters. The crimes there more in particular are wire fraud and mail fraud.

    I am not a lawyer as you know, but I but I do know that there is a legal doctrine which is basically if not for somebody's action a crime would not occur. Islander gave a good example of that when he mentioned that Charles Manson murders.

    Trump and his allies may have committed three distinct crimes:
    Obstruction of an official proceeding — in this case, Congress’ Jan 6 session to count electoral votes.

    Defrauding the United States by interfering in the election certification

    Spreading false information about the results, and a violation of the District of Columbia’s common fraud law.

    18 U.S.C. 1512(c), 1512(d))
    Subsection 1512(c) proscribes obstruction of official proceedings by destruction of evidence and is punishable by imprisonment for not more than 20 years. Subsection 1512(d) outlaws harassing federal witnesses and is a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than one year.

    Curt,

    As Billy Joel sang,

    "You may be right. I may be crazy."

    But, I think it's the other way around.

    Sedition? Sedition. Bahahahahahahahahahaha!

    Yeah, Curt:

    Hate may be crazy. And you may be right.
